25 cl bottle: poured clear light brown with a medium sized light brown head. Dark fruit in the aroma-prunes, raisins, a hint of banana. Nice aroma actually. The taste is fruity with raisins dominating. Fairly dry to me. I thought there would be more sweetness in it. Good beer.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2008 250ml bottle (BelgianShop)Tranquillity (2564) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2008
Deep reddy brown, small persistent head. Sweet subtle spicy aroma, fruity, banana. Pleasant carbonation, succulent in the mouth. Very sweet fruity, spicy, almost cakey initial taste, some brandy vanilla cream. Upon
swallowing, the maltiness fills out a little, and some burnt corners poke through the sweetness. A little sticky, but that’s its only flaw. Covers
7.5% very well.
Bottled. Good Swedish Christmas beer aroma, cookies. Brown, thick beige head. Taste full, with a fresh and burned hoppiness in the finish. yespr (48895) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 11, 2008
25 cL bottle. Pours slight hazy brown with a fully diminished off-white head. Spiced aroma. Flavour following this with a dry to acidic malt base. Ginger - sadly. Ends slight sweet and yeasty with a light acidic touch from the ginger. Bragesnak (5393) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2008
Brown in colour and taste
Malty and sweet with friuty notes MiP (16054) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle, 7.5%. Fruity aroma, hint of brown sugar. Very dark brown colour, seems clear. Big, stable, creamy, rocky tan head, leaving nice lace. The flavour is quite malty, a little sweet, some roasted malt notes and a little alcohol. All in good balance. The roasted notes are the best part of this beer, quite nice.
